Do I have to convert all Powerpoints and Word Documents to PDF in order for EN to index the text? I get lots of files as part of meeting agendas and I really need to keep them together with my notes, but converting them all to PDF each time is a real pain. Is there a solution here? I really want to be able to search these files in the future.

No, it doesn't.

What I do is copy some of the key sentences and paste them into the Evernote note that contains the Word document for Evernote's OCR process

I recently exported my entire GMail address book as a CSV file just in case GMail has a database problem. I copied the entire name column below the attachment. This lets me search for anyone in my contact list.

Is this something that we may be looking forward to in future releases?

Maybe, but I would not bet on it. Dave Engberg has pointed out the problems involved with the multiple variations of past issues of Word.
I tried searching the forum for his comments, but could not locate it. So I am just working from memory.
